+ - Amicus brief filed on behalf of YouTube->

Submitted by NewYorkCountryLawyer
NewYorkCountryLawyer (912032) writes "As the partial summary judgment motions in Viacom v. YouTube, concerning YouTube's compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, draw to a close, a coalition of organizations has filed an amicus curiae brief supporting YouTube's position. The participating organizations are American Library Association, Association of College and Research Libraries, Center for Democracy and Technology, Computer and Communications Industry Association, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Home Recording Rights Coalition, Internet Archive, Netcoalition, and Public Knowledge. The 23-page brief (PDF) argues, among other things, that Congress passed the DMCA for the purpose of reducing the legal uncertainty to which online service providers would otherwise have been subject, and to encourage the growth of the internet and e-commerce."
